Love the idea of whizzing around on an e-scooter during your next trip to Canberra?

Beam—Canberra’s fleet of zippy purple e-scooters—has partnered with The Cultural Icons, 13 of Canberra’s most iconic attractions, to offer a deal for visitors that allows them to scoot around Canberra in style.

The three day Cultural Icons pass costs $24.95 for unlimited rides (up to 120 minutes per day) and is available for purchase within the Beam app.

These limited-edition passes also give users the chance to access dedicated Beam scooter parking spots at the Cultural Icons, making it a breeze to scoot between attractions—and soak up Canberra’s stunning autumn weather in the process.

“Canberra is home to some of Australia’s most popular cultural landmarks, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Cultural Icons to facilitate access to both tourists and residents,” says Beam General Manager (Australia & New Zealand) Tom Cooper.

“By connecting these landmarks with each other, we aim to not only increase the number of destinations Canberrans and tourists can visit, but provide an eco-friendly and affordable way to get there.”

Australia’s Cultural Icons include the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, Australian Parliament House, Australian War Memorial, Museum of Australian Democracy, National Archives of Australia, National Capital Authority, National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, National Gallery of Australia, National Library of Australia, National Museum of Australia, National Portrait Gallery, Questacon, and Royal Australian Mint.

With The Cultural Icons all within scooting distance from each other, it’s the perfect way to tick off your Canberra bucket list—and leave any worries around parking behind.

National Museum of Australia Assistant Director, Public Engagement Mark Goggin explains that The Cultural Icons are a new way to see Canberra as the home of our history and culture.

“The Cultural Icons initiative showcases Canberra as Australia’s cultural heart, telling the story of Australia across 13 immersive institutions, including the important stories of Australia’s First Nations peoples,” he says.

“Nowhere else can you enjoy the depth of experience offered by world-class attractions all located within easy reach of each other.
